The Birth of Waffle House

Matt Dawson is a pop culture artist from Louisiana who has a deep and abiding love for that most Southern of institutions—Waffle House. In the past, he painted an image of Waffle House inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night. This painting shows the birth of Tammy, the archetypical Waffle House employee rising from a waffle iron like Venus on a clamshell in Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus.

Who is Tammy? She is not a specific person but the embodiment of Waffle House goodness just as Venus is the quintessence of feminine beauty. Still: please remain clothed while at your local Waffle House.
